Finally, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Rajya Sabha MP Jyotiraditya Scindia was allotted bungalow at 5, Shyamla Hills by the Shivraj Singh government. 

Former state chief ministers Uma Bharti and Digvijaya Singh will be his neighbours.

Scindia had to vacate his old Delhi bungalow located at 27, Safdarjung Road after he lost from Guna in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Uma Bharti, Digvijaya Singh will be his neighbours
The Safdarjung Road bungalow was allotted to Madhavrao Scindia when he was the Union Minister and after his death, it was allotted to his son Jytotiraditya.

Scindia’s Bhopal bungalow is located near the Chief Minister’s residence and according to a report by TOI, it is bigger than his neighbours Bharti and Digvijaya Singh.

BJP state spokesperson and Scindia loyalist Pankaj Chaturvedi told TOI that Scindia had applied for the bungalow a long time back as he wanted to set up his base in Bhopal.

Scindia will shift in his new home after repair works
Once Scindia shifts to 5, Shyamla Hills, another power centre will come up in the state capital.

Scindia left the Congress in March and joined the BJP after meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence 7 Lok Kalyan Marg. Union Home Minister Amit Shah had also accompanied Scindia to the prime minister`s residence.

The factional feud between the Kamal Nath-Digvijaya Singh and Scindia’s faction forced the latter to resign from the grand old party. Scindia loyalists also resigned from the Congress leading to the downfall of the Kamal Nath government.

The BJP gave him Rajya Sabha ticket and his key aides were inducted in Madhya Pradesh cabinet under Shivraj Singh Chouhan. 

Currently, there are nine Scindia loyalists who have been inducted in the Shivraj cabinet and beside them, there are four legislators who have won the by-elections.
